Garlic Prawns Gordon Ramsey

Garlic prawns

Serves 4
600g large raw prawns
4 tbs olive oil
5–6 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
2 dried red chillies, finely chopped
sea salt and black pepper

To serve:

a few flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
lemon wedges

Method of Preparation
Either leave the prawns in their shells or, if you prefer, remove the heads, peel and devein, leaving the tails intact. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the garlic, dried chillies and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Fry over a medium-low heat for about a minute, until the garlic begins to colour very slightly. Immediately tip the prawns into the pan, increase the heat and fry for about 1½ minutes on each side until bright red and opaque. Arrange the prawns on a warm platter or individual plates, drizzle over the garlic-infused oil from the pan, and sprinkle with a little chopped parsley. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges. Accompany with plenty of crusty bread.
